Screen Shot 2017-01-18 at 7.49.55 PM

You may have heard about Real IDs in the news, but what’s the big deal?  Even if you have a valid Kentucky Driver’s License, you don’t have a Real ID.  Matt Jones explains why Kentucky hasn’t caught up with federal regulations and how it could hurt Kentuckians in 2017.

Watch the entire episode with Drew Franklin after the jump.

    It’s one thing to lack resources or a large population to build on for the future, it’s another to be so deliberately regressive as Kentucky is politically, in human rights, in the environment and energy issues, in education – in the things that make life better. No wonder the bright young people get out if they can.

    Yeah just blame everything on Bevin. It’s not like the Dems have had control of the house since Real ID became law and Bershear had 8 years in office. I agree it shouldn’t have been vetoed but this kick the can down the road mentality on both sides has to stop.

    In this case the Democrats loaded the bill down with riders that had nothing to do with updating our licenses because they didn’t believe Bevin would be brave enough to shoot down the money for the project. Guess what? He did. Please feel free to leave that part out. It was a black mail project on their part and it failed. Please go cry somewhere else.

    More of Matt’s political agenda. Never having watched Hey Kentucky for this reason, I assumed it was sports related. Maybe it’s the same bit of Drew’s drivel about sports with Matt’s politics infused. Surprised the comment section is even open on this one . . . but I guess it doesn’t involve Jonathan, so no big.

    So if we have to have a real ID does that mean the illegals can’t vote anymore?

    How come the same people who rage about anything slightly political, don’t post any condolences on the “EJ Floreal suffers and injury” post, and others like it. I mean, its sports related… Just a thought.

      Probably because one thing has nothing to do with the other. People don’t have to comment on every post to have an opinion on what should be talked about, especially when it’s as unrelated to the point of the blog and divisive as politics. Think it through longer next time.

      Well, you’d think a nice, sincere and sympathetic show of support would be easy to do. Just as easy as ranting in the comment section. What good fans.

      Oh, and Trump is an idiot, and you and everyone who voted for him know it. Or, you are in complete denial. You can’t convince me otherwise.

      HAVE A GOOD 2017.
